There is nothing not to like about the National Gallery of Art in my opinion. Nothing. The east and west buildings are filled with remarkable and noteworthy art, and the fact that it's free is absolutely wonderful. The west gallery contains the only Leonardo DaVinci...More

The National Gallery of Art is divided into two large buildings. The West building is enormous housing “old” masters through impressionists. The East building is a work of art in itself and houses art from the turn of the 20th century through all forms of...More

I love art and this is a great one. So many treasures in a beautiful building. I could spend days in here, but it is also worth a quick walk through as you can see some of the treasures in just 30-60 minutes.

If you are in DC, go to the National Gallery. I especially enjoyed the East Building which house contemporary art. However, the West building is a good start for the journey through some of art’s masterpieces and chronological and geographical changes. The whole museum is...More
